Buffalo Community Theater was started in 1987 through ISD 877 Community Education. Director at that time, Bridget Gothberg, lamented the loss of a long-time, local community theater, Wright County Arts Association and contacted experienced theater people from Buffalo about founding a new community theater.
Carol Moore, Michael Walsh, and Erin Walsh agreed to direct, supervise music, and choreograph a traditional melodrama as the first Buffalo Community Theater production.
After almost ten years of operating under Community Education’s wing, BCT achieved its’ own independent [501(c)3] non-profit status.
BCT continues to produce 3-4 productions annually, ranging from Shakespeare to musical comedy and from mysteries to children’s theater. BCT productions are known for their creativity, talented casts, and high artistic values.
